Femara Round 1 + Preseed + Temping

Postby Ellagsx » Fri Sep 11, 2015 3:19 pm

Well I'm super excited about this month. I started with a new doctor and she is testing everything across the board. We are getting ready to possibly start the IUI process next month if this month is another bust. So here are the things I'm trying differently this month:

BBT (Charting with FF and Ovia)
Preseed (Never used it but I'm going to try it with the temping this month)
Femara (I had great test results with this last time I took it, my progesterone levels got all the way up to a 14!!!)

In addition to all of these the doctor is having multiple blood test ran throughout my cycle to see what is really going on. I had a FSH & LH test done today (CD3), an ultrasound scheduled on CD 13, then a Progesterone blood test on CD 20. I'm hoping this cycle this will be the trifecta and will result in BABY JONES!!! It would be really special if it did happen this month. My fertile window is the week of our 3 year anniversary (Sept 22nd) <3 ! It would be the best anniversary present ever. FX for everyone and lots of baby dust to all!!


Sept 11th - 15th- 5mg Femara
Sept 19th - 24th- Fertile Window
Sept 21st- Follicle Testing (Ultrasound)
Sept 28th- Progesterone Blood Test
Oct 3rd -TEST DAY!!!!

Any news? I had a follicle test done today. I have one large follicle (1.4cm) that they say would be ready by ovulation which is due in Thursday. Any signs of ovulation for you?

Good luck!
I just finished my first round of clomid yesterday. I have PCOS and don't ovulate regularly on my own and I finally found a doctor who actually wants to help me. So I took provera to induce my period (in progress. cd6 today) and took clomid cd1-5. No u/s monitoring this month as we're trying to be as relaxed about it as possible, but if nothing this month we'll be u/s monitoring next month.

So providing the clomid works I am expected to ovulate anywhere between cd12 and cd18. I can't temp because of my crazy sleep schedule but I will definitely be using OPK's and preseed.

Good luck beautiful ladies! Fingers crossed we all get our BFP's in early october!

I know everyone is different but why did you take clomid on CD 1-5? I didn't take it until CD 3-7. I thought that would be too early to take it

I have no idea, I just did what my doctor told me to do LOL! I did wonder about it though and googled it a few days after taking my first clomid dose and I read that the success rate from people taking it cd1-5 is quite high. So I won't argue lmao.
